Here is the new Cagliari University website, AgID compliant
As it was announced in the press, it is with a great pleasure that today we talk about our challenge to build a new site, together with an Italian prestigious Athenaeum to restore UniCa with a modern identity, fitting the University values and the necessary easy of use. The usability for the current, future, ex-alumni/passed students, for the teachers and for all the staff together with AgID guidelines (National Agency for Digital Italy) were the main goals of the project.
The most critical issues in the UniCa case have been a big amount of information services and addressed to different stakeholders and a strong information architecture complexity that doesn’t respect the AgID’s standards guidelines on user experience for the public sector.
To design the new site we adopted the Mobile First approach, designing for the smallest screen and working our way up. This design technique forced us you to prioritize contents and helped us ensuring seamless omnichannel user experience. The adopted methodology, taking into account the impressive size of the site, takes advantage from the Entando modularity, the versatility of the CMS engine and the availability of specific plugins (such as the subsite plug in that helped us create a big amount of pages and contents in a more efficient way).
Working on the governance of the project, not only on the technology, it was a conditio-sine-qua-non to modernize big organizations' applications like the Athenaeum of Cagliari: the use of the Human Centered Design and Content Design workflow made it possible to engage the various targets in every step of the process and to minimize the revisions after release.
The expected benefits for the users and for the Athenaeum are ease of use and maintenance, efficient services and regulatory compliance, running the site to became an AgID best practice.
